The follow-up to 2016’s acclaimed Doom, Doom Eternal, has been delayed into 2020. Previously slated for release on November 22, Id Software and publisher Bethesda announced that Doom Eternal’s release date is now set for March 20, 2020. Id also shared a few development updates on various Doom projects, including the Invasion mode, Nintendo Switch version, and the re-release of classic game Doom 64, which is now coming to more platforms than previously confirmed.
“Throughout the development of Doom Eternal, our goal has been to deliver a game that exceeds your greatest expectations across the board,” the statement reads. “To make sure we’re delivering the best experience–for Doom Eternal to live up to our standards of speed and polish–we’ve made the decision to extend our launch date by a few months to March 20, 2020. We know many fans will be disappointed by this delay, but we are confident that Doom Eternal will deliver a gaming experience that is worth the wait.”
Id didn’t provide any specifics beyond that on what caused the delay, but we do now know that a portion of the game will not be available on release date. The Invasion mode multiplayer, which lets you jump into others’ games as a demon, will be coming as a free update shortly after launch. Additionally, the Nintendo Switch version of Doom Eternal will be coming after the other platforms, with a separate date to be announced later.
Finally, the Doom 64 re-release, which was previously only announced for Nintendo Switch, is also now coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One. That will also hit on March 20, 2020, because it’s being added as a pre-order bonus for Doom Eternal.
